Re: bonded bullets for long range hunting

so is it unrealistic to think of having one bullet for everything. i live in ND but hunt whitetails in wisconsin every year where shots can be as close as 20 yards. i have read reviews on the btsp not performing well on close high velocity shots. so i really want is a bullet that will stay together on close shots yet open enough on long range shots. will the btsp or the interbond be the better option. or are there any other bullets to fit my need better?

Re: bonded bullets for long range hunting

I try not to over-think it and just gear up for my primary objective.

If you really think a high value target may appear up close, have your clip loaded with suitable ammo. ...perhaps the same bullet at a lower velocity.

A different style bullet may help keep from getting them mixed up.

Don't forget to change clips when you get to your primary objective.

If accubonds are accurate in your rifle I'd go with them and not look back. If there is anything closer to the "perfect" bullet for all ranges with a similar BC I've not found it. If you want a tougher bullet the scirocco or interbond are designed for 80% plus weight retention while the accubond is made for 60-70% so it throws a little more shrapnel for added shock. I've had great luck with them.

Re: bonded bullets for long range hunting

I shot a 6 point whitetail buck up at my place in northern Michigan last November with the same 30-06 shells (150 grain BTSP handloads) that I mentioned earlier that were basically worked up for mulies out in Wyoming. He came trotting through on a hot doe track and I hit him through the ribs at about 15 yards. He took about 4 jumps and died with tremendous internal damage that I thought would only occur at much longer distances. That proved to me right there that the BTSP or SP will do the job at all distances!
